Takashi -- I am glad to hear of your interest and thankful for your
consideration. It appears that some of the code-review and testing is
already happening in linux-audio-dev (
http://linuxaudio.org/mailarchive/lad/2010/7/25/172231 ) so I will
submit a more final patch to alsa-devel, once some issues found in
testing&usability get resolved.

Now that I understand the correct way to submit ALSA patches, I will
follow instructions from
for my final ALSA submission.

In my defense of being presumptuous to change the version number,
please note that the submitted patch didn't include the autoconf
change that sets the new version number (
http://nielsmayer.com/envy24control/envy24control-0.6-to-1.0.patch ).
The "1.0.0" is in 'configure' for the source distribution (
http://nielsmayer.com/envy24control/envy24control-1.0.tar.gz ) to help
distinguish it from the standard version....

To avoid confusion for the next 1.0.1 release, I'll do something
similar, but I'll change 'configure' in the source distribution to
build "mudita24 1.0.1" rather than "envy24control 1.0.1", using the
same sources. And release as "mudita24-1.0.1" ... Then I'll submit the
final sourcecode to alsa-devel as [PATCH] results, minus the
config/naming changes. I hope this is an acceptable solution.
